"Wonderfully rich and packed with vivid details...The Arcadian Friends deserves to become a classic" Guardian "The Arcadian Friends offers an invigorating new approach to familiar garden history territory. In the company of his large cast, Richardson guides us deftly through varied landscapes full of surprises." Sunday Telegraph "Replete with first-rate scholarship... there are many delights here" Literary Review "Richardson explains this with verve and enthusiasm, and a measure of his success is that he makes the reader want to visit, or revisit, the gardens he describes" Telegraph "Wonderfully engaging...
